Nick HeidfeldTen days before Melbourne’s Grand Prix, BMW’s German driver Nick Heidfeld has stated that their 2008 challenger, the F1.08, is no longer suffering some of the problems accused during winter tests. When the F1.08 made its track debut, Heidfeld had expressed his concerns on the new car, dismissing the chances of winning a Grand Prix this year.

“Since the rollout in January, we have steadily caught up. In other words, the large lap time gap to the front is no longer there,” Heidfeld told to Sport Bild. The German, estimates that his team has about two tenths per lap deficit from McLaren and Ferrari, suggesting that the Hinwil-based team will be, once again, among the best three teams.
